1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    1999. Spent most of the year high on a variety of substances, ironically getting the best grades I ever had in high school. A lot of parties and general debaucherous teenage behavior. Lost my virginity just before my 17th birthday and spent the next 2-3 months dating that girl; I didn't particularly like her but she was a freak so it made sense at the time. Visited some Ivy League schools in the summer that wanted me to play football for them and extend my Al Bundy dreams, but decided against them due to cost. Got a fake ID near the tail end of the year and made a decent living off of selling alcohol to other minors.

    2009-2010. Flipped fake ID's for profit, imported cartons of Malboros from China for profit, got drunk on lots of beer, got good at beer pong, tried to get into good colleges, tried to get in the panties of hot girls ([​IMG] ), lacrosse, soccer, was unemployed, still can't drive, started spending too much on clothes, drank lots of crappy beer, tried to get into the panties of hot girls, drank lots of crappy beer after said trying, and sneered at potheads while chugging my Georgi vodka. edit: also sold alcohol to other minors. But the real money was buying fakes for kids for 80 bucks and selling em for 150.

    Are New York IDs particularly easy to fake? My fake was actually just my older brother's who looks similar to me. I didn't actually know anyone in my class who had a fake of one of those new fangled computerized non-laminated ones. Which, quite obviously, profited me quite handsomely.

    I deal in Wisconsin, Florida, and California. All scannable. Often the people at Duane Reade will punch in the numbers on the card because they don't recognize the ID and it goes through easily. And those are the usual laminated holographic ones. My ID dealer has a fake NYS one he made off of a pokemon card though... I'm not sure if it scans.

    I've heard that SoCal is like that.

    2009.

    Worrying about getting into college, worrying about baseball, being burnt out of both , starting to party, starting to develop fake bravado to compensate for lack of real confidence, chasing girls, being chased by girls I didn't deserve.

    I would so love to redo last year.

    I guess not. But most teen parents that I know of, I wouldn't describe them as "concerned."

    Me,too. Unlike you guys, I did not smoke,drink,steal or do anything else that was considered fun. ( I was raised deeply religious....urgh) Also that year, I had to spend my time going in and out of the hospital.( I had to be home-schooled ) [​IMG]
